    I was going to put a year and a sport in front of this title, but it's a continuous thing so it isn't necessary.

    Baseball. Football. Golf. Soccer. MMA. NBA. NASCAR. Hockey.

    Whatever sport is in season, list your DFS play for the day here, or any tips you have for wagers or parlays for upcoming events.

    Oh if you are confused now, just you wait until we start talking about stacks and fades.

    I will wait until after week 1 (nfl) to see how things play out before I place any bets.

    I'm too antsy. I suck at betting baseball - too random. I'm ready for some action.

    That said, your approach is certainly smarter.

    First thing I look at for DFS is where Vegas has the O/Us at so I can target the high scoring games.

    This week there are 2 games that are 50+:
    Oakland @ Tennessee
    Seattle @ Green Bay

    Some games at 48:
    Atlanta @ Chicago
    Philly @ Redskins
    Cardinals @ Lions
    Saints @ Vikings

    Out of those, I like Oakland, Seattle, Atlanta and Arizona
    I'm not going to mess with the MIN defense. PHI/WAS scares me.

    Thinking of a few stacks.
    Russell Wilson & Paul Richardson
    Derek Carr & Amari Cooper
    Matt Ryan & Julio Jones & Muhammad Sanu
    Carson Palmer & David Johnson & Larry Fitzgerald

    Tempted to do a PIT stack against CLE too, but division game on the road...and I'm waiting to get a feel for that Browns team. They do have some talent.

    Eagerly looking for @Truck Party@Truck Party's insight.

    I really hope Cincy works out for you. Their offensive line has me terrified. I'm very curious to see what they do with Mixon - that dude is going to be a stud. I just don't know how soon.

    I just think Baltimore is a mess on offense. Their defense should keep it close but Joe Flacco is busted up & does terrible In cincy.
    He's had 1 td in his last 4 games there

    Any thoughts on the game tonight?
    DAL is favored by 5.5 over NYG
    That feels like too many points.

    Thoughts on tonight's games?

    NO +3 with a ML of +150
    @
    MIN -3 with a ML of -170
    O/U is 47.5


    LAC +2.5 with a ML of +128
    @
    DEN -2.5 with a ML of -148
    O/U is 42


    I like Denver to win by 3. So I'll go there. Not sure about the NO/MIN game. MIN D is nasty, but Brees always seems to keep games close. I think I'll take the points.

    Denver wins 24-21. Boom.
    Still lost money to the juice because MIN handed NO their ass, but a split is better than nothing.

    Week 1 is always a bitch.
